I wouldn't call it insight, but an observation I've made as I work through all the shows in "The 1984 Project" I've noticed that some show SBD recordings have Billy and Mickey all mashed up in the center, while other shows have them very sharply separated into the right and left channel. In some cases you can clearly hear the stick hitting the skin on one side, while at the same time hearing the cymbals in the other channel and almost zero bleedover from one into the other channel. Not surprisingly, the shows with good separation between the two sound better.

Another thing I've found is that no matter how you mix the drummers, there is no possible way of making "Why Don't We Do It In The Road" or "Don't Need Love" sound good.

Except when they end.........

That's cuz they did it on the drums.

Sadly I may be the only person who actually likes Why Don't We Etc. I think it's fun. At least when it's not painful. Somewhat pointlessly, I even have an opinion on The Best WDWDIITR. (Hmmm, I've never actually seen it written that way. Undoubtedly cuz there's not much call for it. Bet that could win a trivia contest.) In case you need to know, the best is 7/4/84. Granted, the competition is minimal and the standards are low, but c'mon, it's fun!
